Currently there is a Custom Notification based on length of time.
What would be nice is a Custom Notification if a Device Turns On or Off between certain hours of the day.
My wife noticed the electric blanket was already on when she went to turn it on one evening. That’s because there is a button that is easily bumped that disabled the auto off that got hit.
It would be really nice if there was a Notification that fired say any time after 10AM to 10PM we know if it was left on. I think this could be used to isolate lots of other problems or usage cases.
Since Sense works heavily off of cycling patterns The length of time Custom Notification is not very useful and would not work on the electric blanket. The blanket was “on” for 36 hours. But as far as Sense is concerned is was never “on” for more than 12 seconds and turned on/off a 1000 times in that period.
Sense needs to understand when a “pattern” starts and stops. Not a single “pulse” within a pattern is up or down. And what it’s average power is when that pattern is active.
Even if I looked at my bubbles I would not have seen the blanket left on unless I caught it exactly during that 12 seconds it pulses the heat.
It’s also difficult to do any automation based on a “pulse” of a pattern.
